This year’s Next Step: Inside/Out performances are going online!
Next Step: Inside/Out is a collaboration between the dancers of PNB and the Professional Division students during quarantine. In non-pandemic years, Next Step features a free dance festival outside McCaw Hall and brand new works from PNB dancers inside the Hall. Special thanks to Eva Stone and Christopher D’Ariano for coordinating these virtual performances.
